Subject: Love it!
Lovely Christmas story and read very well! Except for Stave 4 where the reader was apparently falling asleep.

Subject: First class
I am a janitor at a small school in the Dandenong Ranges near Melbourne Australia.Each year i listen to this rendition and enjoy it very much.I upload it on my walkman about the last week of November and listen to a stave each day.The wonderful voice of Kayra and the others bring the story to life.I laugh at some bits such as "ITs your your uncle scroooge! or at scrooges new life voice.Wonderful.I also shed a tear for Scrooges young life left behind at his school or God bless each one by tiny tim.The readers really love what they are reading.Its a christmas tradition that i cherish each year at a very high stressful time.

Subject: I agree with kquinkert...
Yes, I think "kquinkert" is right, and I can only reward these recordings with a 2-star rating. One that is quite superior is the one "kquinkert" mentions at http://www.archive.org/details/AChristmasCarolReadByPatrickStewart.

Although I have read A Christmas Carol several times, I thoroughly enjoyed this interpretation, masterly performed by Patrick Stewart. He deservs a 5-star rating in my opinion.

Subject: Good reading Stave 1-3
I enjoyed the reading with the exception of Stave 4. The reader read so slow and with so little inflection in their voice, I actually listened to the whole file and realized that I hadn't heard any of it. I can't say what the last stave was like, when I went back to re-listen, I realized that it just wasn't going to hold my attention. I went and found another version at http://www.archive.org/details/AChristmasCarolReadByPatrickStewart read by Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard). A much better version!
